These Rules are adapted from Steve Jackson Games "Kill Evil Stevie":
Unfortunately, he has many dedicated bodyguards (the Men In Black) and many
lives (his clones just keep coming back). But for the good of humanity, for
the preservation of all that is right and just, he must be killed and killed
again, as often as necessary . . .
The official target is "Bob". And he is only a legal target when he is
wearing the big red-and-white targets on his chest and back. When in doubt,
Not all his clones are exact duplicates, and sometimes they even come out
better looking than the original. If someone else (of either sex) is wearing
the target than that person IS "Bob" . . . the legal target. There will
never be more than one "Bob" at a time.
There is no wounding in this game; any hit on limb, body or head is a kill.
That goes for hits on you, too. "Bob's" bodyguards cannot be killed;
don't bother shooting them. Yes, they can step in front of darts to protect
their evil master.
After being killed, "Bob" will return in a few minutes and can then be
"Bob" can be killed in these ways:
With any other Class A weapon from the new edition of Killer, if you are
signed up to play AND by advance permission of any of the referees. No
weapon is legal unless YOU have gotten permission to use it. Yes, that means
we will know what to look out for. Believe it.
SEE JAY ROOT/ PHLOIGHD TO GET WEAPONS APPROVED
Class A weapons are Water Guns, Nerf type Swords, etc. No potato guns!
You may only sign up at Rev Phloighds. There will only be a
dozen killers in play at any one time.
You will get a Killer sticker for your shirt. Removing the sticker for any
reason will kill YOU. You must wear your sticker at all times until you kill
"Bob" or die (or drop out and return your sticker). It's not a legal kill
unless the sticker is plainly visible when you kill him. Yes, this makes it
harder . . .
People who have played once MAY play again, but new players will always get
preference over repeaters if there is a waiting list.
How Is "Bob" Defended?
His bodyguards are the Men In Black (some of whom are not men, and some of
whom are not in black). And their guns are better than yours.
The MIBs cannot just wander around wiping people out. They are only allowed
to shoot if they see you wearing a Killer sticker within 20 feet of "Bob",
or carrying a gun or other known weapon within SIGHT of "Bob", or if you
rush at him in a scary way. Once they can legally shoot you, they can pursue
you, but they won't pursue far (because that leaves "Bob" undefended). Once
they give up pursuit, they can't attack you again until you meet one of the
above requirements again.
The MIBs are all completely dedicated, and will jump in front of a dart to
stop it. And they are not like ordinary mortals; bullets don't faze them. So
there is no point in shooting the MIBs . . . they don't have to "die."
So I Can Die Too?
You bet. The game is rigged . . . "Bob" is a hard target.
If we shoot you before you kill "Bob", you're dead. Game over, man. We
will mark through your sticker. You're welcome to get another sticker and
If you shoot another assassin, he is NOT dead, but YOU are dead. In fact, if
you shoot ANYBODY but "Bob" or a MIB, you are dead.
If you TOUCH anybody ("Bob", a MIB, another player, or a bystander),
or put somebody else up to touching them as a distraction, you are subject
to being declared dead. We won't call you on this rule unless we think the
touch is rough, stupid, or offensive, but it is OUR call. (E.g., no knocking
MIBs out of the way. And don't try having three badgeless friends pin Evil
Stevie to the wall so you can shoot him. Cute idea, but no way.)
And if you shoot Steve when he's not wearing the target, you are dead.
So How Can I Kill Him?
Be patient. Wait until he and the MIBs are distracted and not looking at
badges. Maybe you can ARRANGE a distraction. (Teamwork is legal, but
remember, only one of you gets credit for the kill.) Of course, betraying
another assassin is also a great distraction.
To succeed, you will probably have to be very subtle, or very lucky.
Yes, you could just get together with five or six other killers and rush
him. It might work. Or the invulnerable MIBs might just walk over and waste
the whole bunch of you. Remember the "we can waste anyone with a gun in
sight of "Bob"" rule.
What If I Kill Him?
Then you will immediately, with great fanfare, be given an I KILLED "Bob"
sticker for your badge. And the most kills of the day, will get a copy of
the new edition of SubG INWO or a Festival Shirt.
Don't Do This Stuff
Don't shoot anybody but "Bob". REALLY.
If he's not wearing the target, he's NOT "Bob". See above.
Don't attempt an assassination at a time when you might kill or ANNOY a
In general, don't act like an idiot and get the game cancelled.
